A to Z Challenge 2016: M
For M I read Miss Adventure by Geralyn Corcillo.
Best Indie Book of 2013! Best Humor Book of 2013! Double winner of the Rebecca's Reads Choice Awards: It's Chick Lit full force. Can daring adventures with an adrenaline junkie give a daydreaming pushover the courage she needs in order to make her life count for something?
When a freak fast-food accident almost kills scaredy-cat Lisa Flyte, she decides it's time to get a backbone and really start living out loud. But how is a shrinking violet like Lisa supposed to get tough all of a sudden after a lifetime of watching from the couch? Jack Hawkins, that's how. When Lisa finds out that the outdoor extremist from her MBA classes needs a clueless urbanite to test his top-secret line of adventure gear for beginners, she gets the most outlandish idea of her life: she will be his undercover test dummy if he helps her become brave on their adventures in the wild. They strike a deal. But can Lisa use her outdoor moxie to become the alpha hero of her everyday life? Will she find the grit to pursue a career she really wants or the nerve to stand up to her bullying family? And will she get gutsy enough to go after Jack? He's a man who's not afraid of anything...except maybe of falling for Lisa.
This book was really a fun read, Lisa got to do some fantastically interesting stuff over the course of it. I wish that I had the lack of fear to get out and do more adventurous stuff in my life.
The story line progresses along a pretty interesting track as well and comes to a good conclusion.
